Song of the Week! 2 January 2016

For 2016's first song feature, here's a Namco Original track which today is turning 2 years old!

 Houou Tenbu Mugen Kuzure (鳳凰天舞無限崩れ)
Allx4 (195)x5 (279)x7 (504)x9 (689)
 Taiko 0 M, Taiko Wii U 2

Much like with food, the Taiko Team seems to have a fascination for birds, when it comes to Original songs naming. And so, after Sorairo Version's Phoenix, here's another track titled after the legendary flying creature which has rise from its very own ashes.

Originally launched as Momoiro Version's first Don Challenge reward, Houou Tenbu Mugen Kuzure (lit. 'Infinite Collapse of the Heaven Dancing Phoenix') seems to bring back more than a simple title trope, as this instrumental song directly calls back to the traditional Japanese-styled song of the Garyoutensei series, complete with shouts and all! However, since the identity of the composer (and shouter) is still unknown to this day, we can't point out if this can be actually grouped together with the other Garyoutensei tracks from the previous Taiko generation.

What can be surely stated about this song is a pre-emptive warning to its surprising difficulty spike. Although if not gifted with Forked Path notecharts on any mode, the difficulty easily cranks up with Oni mode's sporadically-appearing 1/24 clusters for some serious combo-breaking portions right before the last Go-Go Time zone's beginning and the song's end!
